11:00am Friday 13th September 2013 in News
IT MIGHT be an international contest, but there was a local star among competitors at the annual Blenheim Horse Trials.
Charlotte Agnew, from Kingston Bagpuize near Abingdon, finished third in the CCI3* dressage yesterday.
The 25-year-old said: “I’m thrilled and I couldn’t have asked for more.
“I’m absolutely over the moon and I’m excited for the other events.”
She competed with her 13-year-old homebred Out Of Africa Two and will take part in the cross-country course on Saturday and showjumping on Sunday.
Thousands of people attended the first day at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire.
Trials spokeswoman Sandy Thwaites said: “We normally get about 60,000 people over the four days. “It’s gone very well so far.”
The trials continue until Sunday.
